How has Malcolm X contributed to the Afric-American people?
Negatives and Positives?
Malcolm's greatest gift to African people, and oppressed people all over the world was his example of what a psychologically strong, and spiritually disciplined and focused man can do once his mind is traned in on bringing an end to oppression against his people...
For Malcolm is not simply a hip, fly dressing ex-hustler making eloquent speeches, he is a master organizer and builder, who founded the Muhammad Speaks Newspaper, developed it's first photographs, and did it's first articles... He is the man who single-handedly organized at least half of the NOI's temples around the country, and held down the chief ministry in New York, Philadelphia, Washington, and all points in between, while being the National Spokesman for the organization...
He is Discipline, he is focus, and he is love for the Black Man and Woman of North America, yet he is all those things to all of us around the world, even those who might only have heard his voice, or saw his face in a picture... He talked the talk, and walked the walk, and that always the greatest example anyone can have...
Thank you very much for your insite. and a great point of view

I dont have any negatives to say about him but some people (lacking in knowledge do) there is much more I can say about him. in knowledge
Malcolm X didn't start PanAfricanism, it existed long before his time. PanAfricanism started in the late 1800s. WEB Du Bois was one of the founding fathers. Marcus Garvey also significantly gave to the ideology of the movement. Malcolm X's father was a disciple of Garvey.
No big deal, we're all here to learn.
I wonder what a difference malcom x's vision, and plan for a black head quarters in washiongton d.c. would have made. can u imagine a building in the capitol of the u.s. to kepp white people in check?
This is absolutely and patently false. I was a follower of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad during the early 1960s to the present day. There were over 50 Muhammad's Mosque of Islam by the time of Malcolm's death. He did not establish a single one of them single-handedly; not a single one! Yes, he was Minister of Mosque No. 7, Harlem and one or two other Mosques, but they were old and established long before Malcolm ever heard the word, Islam. He was never the National Spokesman for the Nation of Islam. His official title was National Spokesman of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, an important and significant distinction.
Furthermore, Malcolm may have assisted Messenger Muhammad in the establishment the Muhammad Speaks Newspaper, but so did several other of his top Laborers. He was acting in the capacity of an employee rather than an employer. The founder of Muhammad Speaks Newspaper was the Honorable Elijah Muhammad himself.
